That's all from us today! See you tomorrow for our coverage of the much-awaited India versus Pakistan clash. The match begins at 6.30 PM on Sunday and we at Sportskeeda will bring you all the latest updates and commentary.
...
A clean sheet for India along with a strong first-half performance. Goals from SV Sunil, Akashdeep Singh and Sardar Singh give India a 3-0 win.
...
FULL-TIME WHISTLE! India win 3-0!
...
60' - India looking to wind the game down.
...
58' - Freehit for India! India keep their referral as it was the Canadian forward with the stick check. The Men in Blue clear their lines.
...
58' - HUGE SCRAMBLE! The shot is saved by the keeper but the ball remains in the danger area. Players from both sides converge in a melee of stick swings. The referee awards another PC, but India refer it.
...
58' - PC FOR CANADA! Pereira receives the ball in the circle and is able to find an Indian foot.
...
57' - Almost a goal for Canada! A long ball enters the Indian penalty area and the Canadian striker hits it instinctively. It is well-directed but shaves the outside of the left-hand-side post.
...
18 circle penetrations from India compared to 2 from Canada just shows the domination that the Men in Blue have had in this game.
...
55' - Mandeep enters the circle from the left with a dazzling piece of skill, cutting past three defenders in the process. However, his shot is well saved by the Canadian goalie.
...
55' - Dangerous ball played into the CAN circle from the left. 

Talwinder was there at the back but the last Canadian stops it from going to him.
...
54' - India are just passing the ball at the back now, keeping possession and not allowing Canada to attack.
...
52' - Canada with a shot on to the sideboard after Pereira enters the circle from the left with some deft skill. The follow-up shot is not as good though and that's a change gone for Canada.
...
51' - A good chance for India as Ramandeep Singh comes in from the left but his cross his well-dealt with by the Canadian defense. No danger!
...
48' -  IND on the mark and have kept the tempo up. They go to Sunil on the right and then play it back and keeping possession of the ball.
...
So a goalless thrid quarter there would be suiting the Canadians down the to the core. Looking bleak for them to make any sort of a comeback.
...
39' - OFF THE POST!

Harmanpreet's flick is chased down. But he has a second bit and that is saved by the keeper. Comes out to Chinglensana who smashes it on the reverse.

Carter is beaten but that ricochets off the post.
...
38' - Another PC for IND!

Wasn't given initially there. But Talwinder asked for a referral and their appeal is upheld as the defender had obstructed him.
...
38' - SAVED!!

Not by the keeper there.
Harmanpreet's effort was deflected by the rusher but was still heading towards the goal.

But Tupper has his stick up in the air and gets it away from danger.
...
38' - Another PC for IND. This time Ramandeep gets to the ball and his quick work finds the foot.

Harmanpreet in the field this time.
...
36' - SAVED!

Deception and this a variation as the trap is pushed to Manpreet who is standing behind Jasjeet. Could flick across the goal but Carter is there to save.
...
35' - All action here as IND gets another PC. Mandeep with some good work and finds the foot of a Canadian defender.

Harmanpreet off here so it should be Jasjeet.
...
35' -  NEARLY!

Nearly four their for IND as Sunil gets to the left of the goal near the baseline. But Carter closes the angles down.
...
35' -  YELLOW CARD!

Canada down to 10 for the next 5 minutes as Smythe is sent to the sin bin for a push at the back on Sunil.
...
Canada looking much better right now. And could have had India in some trouble.
